Biotics Research Phosphatidylcholine - 100 Capsules
Biotics Research Phosphatidylcholine supplemental source of this important phospholipid, which is a major constituent of cell membranes, and is important for normal cellular membrane function and repair.
For the Health of Your Patients:
Phosphatidylcholine (PC) is a member of the class of “essential phospholipids”, meaning that the body is incapable of synthesizing its own supply. Being one of the most abundant phospholipids, it is of no surprise that PC is considered to be the most important, as it is crucial for cell membrane integrity. Cell membrane integrity is extremely important for cellular function, protecting cells from damage to their DNA and their organelles. Damage to the cellular membrane may result in cellular death. In the nervous system, PC plays two very important roles. In addition to being an integral component of the myelin sheath (as sphingomyelin) which surrounds nerve cell axions, the body also combines PC and pantothenic acid to form acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter responsible for sending electrical impulses across synapses between nerve cells, and from motor neurons to muscle cells. As a source of choline, PC is required for the proper metabolism of fats, and plays a role in normal brain functioning and memory. Low levels of PC have been associated with aging, cognitive decline, impaired blood flow and circulation, decreased libido, elevated cholesterol, impaired fat metabolism, neurological disorders, migraine headaches, inflammation of the large intestine, and with decreases in liver, kidney, pancreatic, and cardiac function.
For the Health of Your Practice:
Why choose Phosphatidylcholine from Biotics Research Corporation? Most PC absorption occurs in the proximal small intestine where it is dependent on normal functioning of the pancreas, liver, and gallbladder. Any alterations in the performance of these organs may impair fatty acid absorption, and ultimately affect PC concentrations. PC levels also decline with age and alcohol consumption. Each softgel capsule of Phosphatidylcholine contains 1,200 mg of lecithin supplying 420 mg of phosphatidylcholine. Biotics Research Corporation tests its PC not only for identity, but for purity (heavy metal and microbial contaminants), and for stability. A typical recommendation would be 2-3 capsules, three times daily, however practitioners should rely on their own clinical judgment when dosing. Folic acid, vitamin B12, and pantothenic acid are synergistic to PC, and can easily be supplied with Bio-B Complex As always, you can count on Biotics Research Corporation to offer superior nutritional products supplying “The Best of Science and Nature”.

You can use any product from Biotics Research without concern because ALL BIOTICS RESEARCH PRODUCTS ARE GLUTEN FREE !
Quality Control - What Sets Biotics Apart
The Biotics Research way!
At Biotics Research Corporation, we manufacture our own branded products on site, in our own state of the art facilities, allowing for complete control of the entire manufacturing process. In our on-site laboratories, the highly skilled members of our Quality Control Unit, utilize modern, sophisticated technologies and validated analytical methods to test incoming raw materials, monitor manufacturing processes, perform in- process testing, and test all finished products prior to their release for shipment. In fact, many aspects of our cGMPs (current Good Manufacturing Practices) exceed the new, recently enacted FDA guidelines for dietary supplements in order to ensure the safety and effectiveness of our products.
The Quality Control Unit (QCU) has the authority to approve and/or reject all specifications and procedures associated with the production and release of all raw materials, packaging materials and finished products, including test methods and results, instrument calibrations, and processing records. The QCU conducts all internal audits, and validates and audits all raw material and packaging suppliers and service vendors as well.
All incoming raw materials are subject to appropriate testing prior to their release for production. Tests conducted include identity, potency, biological activity, microbiological, including bacteria, yeast and mold (including aflatoxins) and heavy metals (arsenic, cadmium, lead & mercury). Retained samples are maintained of all raw materials and finished products for future testing requirements (raw material stability and finished product expiration date verification).
All bulk finished products (tablets & capsules) are inspected and subjected to metal detection prior to being sampled by QC. They are then subject to appropriate disintegration and/or dissolution testing, and potency testing prior to being released to packaging. All liquid and powder products are tested for potency prior to packaging as well. Finally, microbiological testing is performed on all finished products and document reconciliation is completed prior to being released for shipment.
All testing is performed by our trained QC personnel using state of the art laboratory instrumentation including High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), ICP, Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry (AA), gel electrophoresis, FT -IR, Ultra Violet spectrophotometry, Thin Layer chromatography and Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC- MS).
Unlike many companies that are struggling to meet the new GMP requirements established by the FDA, companies that are being regulated into implementing quality programs, extensive Quality Control has always been part of the corporate fabric of Biotics Research Corporation.
From day one, the mantra of Biotics Research Corporation has been “Innovation and Quality.” Our goals remain unchanged – utilize innovative ideas and carefully researched concepts with advanced techniques to develop products of superior quality and effectiveness – bringing you “The Best of Science and Nature”.
